sister, and I enjoyed paging through it the first time. I knew she was writing a book, but wasn't sure which quilts were going to be in it. The one on the cover is one I want to try to make, as well as the mini nines quilt, though I am not going to make my squares quite so small. If you like making or admiring quilts, this book is worth looking at. There are also a few small projects at the end of the book for people who might not want to commit to making a quilt but have scraps from other sewing projects.

Agnes and Clarabelle by Adele Griffin and Courtney Sheinmel is a fun book for early elementary students. It is a beginning chapter book with great characters and pictures Agnes and Clarabelle are best friends and enjoy an adventure for each season. For spring, the two friends plan a surprise birthday party. Summer finds them on a trip to the beach, while in the fall they go shopping and in the winter they make pizza. The antics of Agnes and Clarabelle made me smile because of the real life situations in which they find themselves and how they solve their problems.

The Day it Rained Hearts is still my favorite Valentine book, though this one is now number two on my list. Do you have any favorite books for Valentine's Day?

Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond is the newest book by the popular duo. Written in the same style as the other books, Mouse wants more than what he has and continues to ask for one more thing. I enjoyed this story more than If You Give a Cat a Cupcake or If You Give a Dog a Donut. For those of you who liked the other books or have children who do, this is worth picking up at the library or the bookstore.
